The lake is beautiful and the water is clean but the flies don't leave us alone since we come out from the car. I didn't enjoy it last time because of the bugs and flies. Good for camping.

Great place to camp or just spend the day. Bring your portable BBQ set up on the beach for the day and enjoy the sandy beach, beautiful waters and wind! Don't forget your sun block, that wind is deceiving!
